Maggi Hambling at Marlborough Fine Art

Only a select few artists are granted retrospectives at the British Museum—Grayson Perry and Richard Hamilton are but two names that immediately spring to mind. Maggi Hambling can also be included in this hallowed few, and to deny her relevance—and longevity—as an artist would be a folly. After graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art, Hambling was the first Artist In Residence at the National Gallery in 1980, and has built up a body of work spanning painting, sculpture, printmaking and installation. Now, she is returning to Marlborough Fine Art, her gallery of 20 years, for her eighth solo exhibition with the gallery, entitled Maggi Hambling: Edge with works touching on the subject of human vulnerability through the contemporary lenses of Aleppo, immigration and global warming. Immediately pertinent and always visceral and thought-provoking, an opportunity to experience Hambling’s work is not to be missed.
